Hawaii Car Wrecks

 Waikiki, HI - Car Wreck Results in Injuries on Kalakaua Ave at McCully StCar wrecks occur often in Hawaii. Three prevalent causes of auto crashes in the state are: 

  • Intoxication
  • Distraction
  • Speeding

Studies completed comparing different types of driver negligence show that the most dangerous form is currently distracted driving. Distracted driving can prove to be even more hazardous and deadly than intoxicated driving and speeding. When a person takes their eyes off of the road for more than 5 seconds while driving 55 miles per hour, it is the same as if they were blindfolded driving the length of a football field. Any and everyone they encounter in this time period will be at serious risk for severe injuries or even death. 

When it comes to driving while intoxicated, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that approximately 10% of all fatal auto crashes in the US involve a drunk or high driver.

Driving while distracted and intoxicated are comparable due to the fact that both tend to take our attention away from the roadway and impair our judgment and our vision. Choosing to look at your phone instead of the roadway is definitely a bad judgment call and could end your life and the life of those whom you encounter on the roadway.

Using a cellphone while behind the wheel in Hawaii is completely illegal unless your device is hands-free. For those who are under 18, texting and driving is illegal. Teenagers are completely prohibited from using any type of electronic device while driving in order to preserve their own safety and that of those around them.  

When a driver’s attention goes from the roadway elsewhere, safety instantly becomes a serious concern. Pedestrians, fellow drivers, and anyone else on the roadway deserve your full attention while behind the wheel, so as to not put their lives at risk. 

Negligent driving is still a serious problem in Hawaii and throughout the United States, despite harsh punishments put in place to keep it from happening. Across the United States, more than 90% of reported auto crashes happen due to driver negligence.
